I'm overwhelmed, pregnancy stressed, can't quite process twins just yet. So I stress cooked comfort food in the middle of the night and will probably eat the rest in the morning. I forgot to take a photo. 

Chilaquiles

1 tsp butter or cooking spray

6 eggs (one in reserve)

1 tbsp milk

1/4 C salsa (quemada, verde, rojo - personal choice)*

3 C tortilla chips, .5 c used in reserve

1/4 C sharp shredded cheddar or cojita blanca

Dash of cumin

Black pepper to taste

Optional: chopped onion and peppers, cooked to taste between steps 2 and 3

 

1) Heat pan at low-medium and melt butter. Once hot, half crush 2.5 cups tortilla chips in your hand and add to pan.

2) Once fragrant and crispy, about 2 min, add salsa and cover, let simmer for 5 minutes.

3). While salsa and tortilla chips are simmering beat 5 eggs with 1 tbsp milk and a dash of cumin, black pepper to taste and add to pan.

4) Add eggs to pan and mix with contents, cover to simmer for  approximately 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

5) Once the egg mixture begins to thicken and appears half cooked add cheese, switch heat to simmer, stir and recover for 10 to 15 minutes.

6) Taste and adjust seasoning. Add remaining egg, black pepper and increase heat to medium. When white of freshly cracked egg is begging to look cooked add remaining 1/2 tortilla chips and stir. Additional salsa if eggs look dry.

6) Serve immediately, paired with fresh fruit, beans, salsa, guacamole, extra cheese and tortilla options.

 

*Reference:

*Quemada is the dark brown salsa (also called burnt, roasted), it is my go to. Verde is green salsa, mild and cilantro based. Rojo is just whatever your preferred red salsa and spice level is, there’s a specific breakfast salsa where I’m at, but that’s probably not common.

      I have a deadly allergy to nuts. I have a hard time finding pre made meals that are safe. I have to make most things from scratch because nuts are like the Spanish Inquisition. 

      Great analogy. Ended up in the ER a few months ago in anaphylaxis because of surprise peanuts. It’s so hard to get food out!

    • Lori sounds like Erika Shupe with her purpose for everything. God gave men beards to keep their faces warm. So why does Ken shave off something that God gave him for a reason.

      Call me cynical, but I have to wonder if being active military would be on the minus column for potential suitors of the Phillips daughters, because it's real life and not role play. 

      I'm not sure wether the Phillips can afford to be picky about suitors anymore. Sure, they'll want someone with the more or less same believes, but beyond that Beall is probably glad when there is one less eater on her bill.

      As a daily wearer of blue eyeshadow (and blue mascara, liner and lipstick) I say F trends, wear whatever makeup, clothes, hair, etc. makes YOU feel good about yourself. 

       

      Disclaimer: if being On Trend is what makes you feel good, rock every trend you can find.

       

      Secondary disclaimer: I also have blue hair, so I’m very defensive about color-related grooming and this isn’t directed at any one poster 💙

      I am starting to question Dericks intentions for marring Jilly more. He seems to be saying that he “settled” for her.
